UNBELIEVABLE! We paid five billion dollars!…. let me say that again…. we paid five billion dollars! for an Army deserter. So that we could rightfully prosecute his as a deserter, and potentially as a traitor?
No. He is a free man, if you can call him a man. We also paid the deserter $300,000 in what is being called back pay. In addition to the five Taliban prisoners we released, WE PAID FIVE BILLION DOLLARS to Qatar for a treasonous scumbag deserter.
Bergdahl should be in jail. Instead, we gave him $300,000 (and I have calculated the pay for an Army E-4/E-5, and it doesn’t come close to $60,000 a year), plus released five high-value, high-level terrorist prisoners, plus gave away FIVE BILLION DOLLARS! That’s $15 for every man, woman, and child in America…. for a foul piece of shit!
I can’t get over this. This is clearly treason!
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
It is beyond amazing that only Fox News covered this. The mainstream media is complicit and totally on board with the Obama “Hate America” agenda.
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer was a part of the team that negotiated the release of deserter Bo Bergdahl. He discusses his role in the deal with Bill O’Reilly.
Bill O’Reilly: Let me just stop you (interrupting guests is what O’Reilly does best). There were three trade scenarios, there were three things they could have done. You were involved to try to work that out to some extent?
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: Not all of them involved trade. One of them essentially was a direct action. One of them involved my aspect, which was not again a trade. It was something working the issue. And, obviously the one the president went with was the $5 billion to Qatar and the trade of the five Taliban.
Update, September 20, 2018: The following video of the O’Reilly-Shaffer interview has been deleted by YouTube for a violation of its terms of service, they say.
Uh-huh. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that paying $5 billion dollars for one deserter would make Barack Hussein look like a traitor himself.
